    yep im afraid you have to drop the bumper thanks to the dog**** corsa c facelift design. you can't access sidelights, and also if you've notciced the battery is a ***** to get to, cant remove it withouth taking loada ova stuff off!

    you dont neccesserily have to drop the bumper, if you manage to get a set of really long nose pliers with a bend, you can get them in to pull the bulb holder out, if you dont or are not wanting to buy them then dropping the bumper is the next easiest option

    By the time you've jacked the car, taken the bumper off, removing lights, and putting it back together again, could easily take an hour

    Because there are two nuts you need to remove in the wheel arch. Just gives you more access to them with a ratchet. I made a thread in the tutorial section for removing the front bumper (pre-facelift) but facelift is just the same basically
